THE STORY OF The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar

Conveniently located close to Highbury & Islington tube station, the Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar is a well-established watering hole in this culturally-rich London district.  Just a short stroll from Highbury Fields and a 10 minute walk from Arsenal Stadium, the pub is perfect for a spot of pre- or post-match refreshment.

The bar’s intimate upstairs stage has a long tradition of fringe theatre and stand-up comedy; from emerging theatre groups to performers such as Jimmy Carr and Russell Brand, ‘the Chicks’, as it is also known, has hosted a huge selection of acts over the years.

Loved by locals – many of whom say ‘the whole pub’s a stage’, the Hen & Chickens is a unique London pub, where customers can enjoy their favourite tipple whilst embracing both the characters treading the boards and those propping up the bar…
